5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic eye opener, 19 Dec 2002
With films like Saving private Ryan and T.V. programs like Band of Brothers you wouldn't be wrong in thinking that the really hard fighting was done by the yanks. They engaged the main Panzers while we sat back drank tea and twiddled our thumbs.
The truth is far from it and this single book explains why.
Its a brilliantly executed piece of writting and tells the story of the battle for the hardly heard of Hill 112. Where the 43rd division faced off against the elite of the SS panzer arms.
It brings a tear to your eye when you read about the hard bitter quarterless fight that when over the world forgot.
